This black ale is the perfect balance of dark roasted malt and bright hop flavors. With bold and complex flavors at the forefront, this beer retains a remarkably clean finish.

I have had this beer at the Brewery on tap and it was very good (4.5). At that time they were still working on the IBU's . I then picked up a six pack of bottles at a local (Madison WI) store, the taste was near as good 3.5. I had hoped this was because they still working on it. I was going to look for it again this December and see if the bottles improved. (365 characters)

Appearance - Very dark brown to black. Hard to be certain, but appears clear. Long-lived foamy off-white head.

Smell - A light aroma of indistinct malt and a goodly dose of floral hops.

Taste - Smokey malt, tastes of charcoal and coffee. Hops is surprisingly subdued, but present in a light herb and grapefruit finish.

Mouthfeel - Medium and creamy.

Overall - This beer is much smoother drinking than I anticipated. The flavors are rich, but balanced. The hop level seems like it might be a bit lower than many would expect from an IPA. (541 characters)
